Throughout the 1990s, “Rock ‘N’ Roll Comics” was a popular staple on the newsstands. Now the title will be receiving an encore as newly-packaged graphic novels through Bluewater Productions in partnership with the original creators Revolutionary Comics.

According to a news release, more than 70 biographies of notable bands and rock legends will be published in 10 bi-monthly volumes starting this month with the “Beatle Experience.” Other classic rockers who will be featured include Elvis Presley, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Who and dozens of others.

“Great ideas, like the marriage of rock ‘n’ roll and comics, have the half-life of uranium and will always be popular,” says Jay Allen Sanford of Revolutionary Comics in the release. “The folks at Bluewater clearly have their fingers on the same pop culture pulse that enabled the original ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Comics’ to become one of the top-selling indie comics of the ’90s. Truth is often stranger than fiction … and certainly much more interesting!”

According to Bluewater, the issues will be packaged into 10 graphic novels ranging from 150 to 300 pages. Each graphic novel, which covers a particular band, era, or style, will sport new covers. Bluewater, best known for biographical comics, such as Female Force and Political Power, will create forewords and epilogues written by music journalists and industry insiders.

“In some cases, we will add an epilogue for groups that experienced notable milestones after the issues original publishing,” Bluewater president Darren G. Davis says in a release. “Like Pink Floyd’s reunion concert at Live8, or the passing of the Who’s John Entwistle or even the release of the long delayed Guns N’ Roses album ‘Chinese Democracy.’”

The original series published by Revolutionary Comics ran from 1989 to 1994. At it’s height in the early 1990s, sources report that Revolutionary Comics was the largest independent comic publisher in the industry. Circulation for each issue regularly surpassed 50,000. During its run, the company won several high-profile First Amendment cases securing the right to publish the unauthorized biographies as “illustrated articles.”

The new books will be sold on Amazon.com as well as national book stores across the US. “Volume 1: The Beatles” will be in stores Tuesday.

The suggested retail price for each upcoming graphic novel release is $17.99.
